The following birds are available for sale at this time. They are priced so the average person can afford them. So don't pass up some good birds just because they're not priced at several hundred dollars each. If you're at the other end of the financial spectrum, you need to realize that these are pedigreed animals and not street pigeons. The day of the five-dollar pigeon is long gone. They are priced so I can receive some reasonable return on the investment I have made in feed, time caring for them, etc.

What is a pigeon really worth? The value of a pigeon depends on three factors, and you can read about them here.

You will find some rare-colored birds among those listed. It is important to remember that we are a FLYING loft, not a COLOR loft. Our rare colors are required to fly right with the other birds. We sell youngsters that we raise out of our flyers, but we will seldom sell the rare-colored flyers themselves because we will be using them later as breeders.

I am selling pigeons, not paper, but almost all of those listed below have extensive pedigrees. I will provide whatever pedigree information I have on each bird listed. Feel free to email me and request an electronic copy of the pedigree of any bird listed here.

PLEASE NOTE: 2012 saw another significant increase in postal rates. Therefore, if birds are to be shipped to you (shipping to destinations in the USA only), the shipping charge will be $55 for one or two birds, $75 for 3 or 4 birds, $100 for 5 or 6 birds, and $120 for 7 or 8 birds to cover the cost of postage and a special USPS-approved shipping box. (Larger boxes not only cost more, but they also mean even more weight, hence the jump in shipping costs as the number of birds increases.) More than 8 birds will require a second box.

Payment can be made via money order (I do not accept personal checks) or you can use Visa or Mastercard by clicking on the Paypal logo below. Paypal is preferred.

1.

Sale Pending 2013 HVR cock from the flying team. Flew 5 races out to 180 miles. Would have flown more but our club flew only one OB race this year. Sire is "Mr. Attitude" bred by Ron Deisher, inbred to some of Lou Coletta's best. Dam is a Ned Beasley HVR bred by Jeff Draney. Price: $75 - Sale Pending (Parra)

2. July hatch red HVR cock, carrying the gene for dilution. Sire of this cock is a double grandson of Lou Coletta's "Cinnamon", who having been purchased for $21,000 proceeded to produce four winners from her first four eggs for the purchaser. Dam is a yellow HVR hen that was sold on this site earlier this month. She is a sibling of a money winner and a granddaughter of "The Iceman", a 300-mile winner. Price: $100
3. June 1st hatch blue check, no. 4919, with 3 out of 4 grandparents being AU Registered Champions. This one appears to be a hen, but the sex is not guaranteed. Sire was purchased from John Beeson, who flies with the Wichita club. Sire is a son of "Man-o-War's Soldier", an AU Elite Champion and two-time Hall of Fame winner. Dam was bred by Ron Pairan, AU Legend of the Sport, and she is out of two AU Registered Champions, both flown by Ron Pairan. Price reduced: $50
4.

Sale Pending True silver (dilute blue) barless pied hen, AU 14 WCOF 4744, with race record. Our club only flew three young bird races this year and she flew all of them, coming from 100 twice and 125 once. Sire flew 130 miles twice as a young bird prior to season being cancelled due to enormous smash in which he was 7th vs 159 birds, where less than 20 birds ever returned. Dam flew 120 and 125 as a young bird prior to being pulled for stock. 4744 is primarily Janssen on her sire's side and Van Loon on her dam's side. She is a granddaughter of a 200-mile winner and the great-granddaughter of a 300-mile winner. Price: $100 - Sale Pending (CP)

5.

Son of a race winner! "Near white" - August 2014 hatch white grizzle cock no. 4283. Dam was 1st @ 180 and 4th @ 120 as a YB. Sire was 2nd @ 100 as a YB. Sire is grandson of two AU Champions on one side and an American Ace Pigeon on the other side. 4283 is 50% Dworek. Price: $50

6. Large 2014 blue check "drizzle" cock, no. 4869, from the YB flying team. He was a late hatch and only got to fly one race, from 120 miles. He had been injured earlier and carries a dent in his keel to attest to the fact that he is definitely a flyer. He didn't really get a chance to prove himself, but I am overloaded with flying cocks, so I can afford to let him go. His sire is the HVR cock listed below at no. 25, and his dam is unflown but is the sister of a race winner. 4869 is also the grandson of a race winner. Dam is a dilute "drizzle", so this cock carries the gene for dilute in case that is something that might interest you. This pigeon is probably about 5/8 HVR. Price: $75
7.

2013 barless blue cock, no. 36925, bred from my flyers. Sire flew 6 races out to 255 miles prior to being stocked. Dam flew 120 and 125 before being pulled for stock. "The Iceman", an ash red barless 300-mile winner is on both sides of the pedigree. 36925 is approximately 1/4 Van Loon. This cock was a late hatch and therefore unflown himself. However, I believe that nowhere will you find a barless blue like this, bred from proven flying stock, at this price, which is about 1/3 his true value. Full pedigree. Price: $200.

8.

August hatch blue bar no. 4299, sex unknownbut likely a hen, that carries the gene for recessive opal. Sire was bred by Ron Pairan of Ohio, and is the son of two AU Registered Champions, and he is the sire of several diploma winners. Dam is a full sister of "Snake River", a beautiful "white lace" recessive opal who is a 200-mile winner. Full pedigree. Price: $35

9. August hatch red grizzle Delbar, bred from a pair of pure whites. Sire has never been raced but was trained out to 50 miles and flown extensively as a young bird and a yearling. He is the son of my best breeding pair of white Delbars down from the original CBS imports of the Korstanje family of 500 and 600-mile winners. Dam is directly out of a pair of imported white Delbars, and was bred by Greg Mullinix of Kansas. Bird is too young to guarantee sex, but I suspect it is a hen. Full pedigree. Price: $50
10. 2014 black cock no. 4765, that flew 100, 100, and 120 on this year's young bird team. I would normally keep this bird to fly as an old bird, but I have extra cocks. He is approximately 3/4 Dworek. His sire is out of a 200 mile winner, and he recently was sold on this site. His dam is out of an AU Registered Champion. I don't sell many of my flyers, but here is one at a very attractive price. Price: $75
11. August hatch blue bar no. 4982, sex unknown but appears to be a large hen. This pigeon carries the gene for recessive opal, and there is an even chance that she also carries barless. On her dam's side she is a half sister to a 200-mile winner, and her sire is a son of "Heisenberg", my best old bird flyer, who was 1st at 130 and 160, and has 8 diplomas (1st through 5th). Sire is also the father of a race winner in 2012. Price: $50
12. July hatch "white grizzle", no. 4964 cock, bred out of a pair of my flyers. Sire is half Dworek. He flew 4 races out to 180 miles as a YB and has a 5th-place diploma at 180. He is also the nestmate of the winner of that 180. Dam is a Dworek/Delbar cross. Full pedigree. Price: $50
13. August hatch Silver Cock no. 4998, This large well-muscled powerful cockbird is Skylake Sion on his dam's side, and a blend of Janssen, Dworek and VanHee on sire's side. Sire is out of a hen that is Dworek x Ganus Janssen and a cock that is Janssen and VanHee. Dam is Skylake Sion out of a hen directly from Dr. Mike Brown and a cock out of a pair of birds from Dr. Brown.Price: $50.
14.

Son of a race winner! 2013 blue check cock, no. 3051. Flew 5 races out to 180 miles. He is a mixture of several families, with established quality on both sides. Sire is unflown but a full brother to "Snake River", a 200-mile winner. "Snake River" is a beautiful "white lace" or "pearl" coloration, which is actually spread recessive opal. Dam is a true silver (diulte blue) bred by Sal Rodriguez of Utah. She was 1st club(254 birds) and 2nd concourse (500+ birds)at 162 miles. Remember, paper doesn't fly; pigeons do. This bird is fully pedigreed, but performance, not fancy names, is what matters. This is a performance pedigree all the way. Price: $75

15.

Sire of a Race Winner! 2006 blue check Dworek cock, purchased from Barry Venn as a young bird. I know I am repeating myself, but the only reason he is available is due to a necessary downsizing of the breeding loft. Grandson of Dworek's foundation cock 609 on dam's side; g-grandson AND g-g-grandson of 609 on sire's side! Sire of AU 2011 WCOF 1561, a race winner at 125 miles. Low price on him due to his age, but as of this year he was filling every egg. Price: $100

16.

DIRECT FROM THE BREEDING LOFT

2008 Janssen hen. This hen, no. 8355, has Blue Miracle twice as a g-grandsire, and "Houdini" twice as grandfather. Dam to 2nd place (= 1st) @ 150 miles, a futurity bird sent to Defiance Pigeon Club auction race. She is a daughterr of "Houdini, Jr". and double gdtr of "Houdini". "Houdini" was a son of "Blue Miracle" and "Granger's Diamond", one of the more famous breeding pairs coming out of the loft of Mike Ganus. Besides the futurity winner, 8355 also had a daughter who placed 164 out of 856 in 2014 GNEO futurity. Low price due to her "advanced" age: $75

17.

Special offer - Direct from the Breeding Loft - Mated pair of Houbens.

2012 Cock bred by Sal Hernandez of California, out of Clausing's "White Gold" and "Red Girl". 2013 Hen bred by Dennis Doyle of Texas and is Clausing Houben all the way. Hen shows "410" as a great-grandsire, and cock is a grandson of "410" on sire's side and a great-grandson on dam's side. The hen was very young when I got her last spring and I did not raise any young from them in time to fly them as young birds. I did raise two young from them in July, but I sold them to an individual in New York state who wanted them for breeders. This is one of the pairs that I won't be unhappy if they don't sell, but I am engaged in a major loft reduction and am making a lot of tough decisions. Price: $350 for the pair, or $200 each if sold separately.

18.

This is not a white! It looks like a white, but it is an ash red brown qualmond barless cock, no. 4934, bred from a pair of my flyers. The qualmond is linked to brown. Sire is a yellow bar and is a son of "The Iceman", an ash red barless 300-mile winner. He flew 6 races out to 255 miles prior to being stocked. Dam is a brown qualmond barless. She flew twice from 100 miles prior to being pulled for stock. Her sire is a grandson of "The Iceman"and is mostly Janssen. Her dam is a yellow check that is basically Janssen/Van Loon. Price: $125

19. DIRECT FROM THE BREEDING LOFT - 2011 Huysken-VanRiel cock. Bred by Ron Deisher and goes back to Michael Van Lint and Lou Coletta HVR's, including "Black Rain", "Black Beauty", "Judy Hart", and 1180. This pigeon would be considered a "keeper" if I did not find it necessary to downsize due to health reasons. Price: $150
20. DIRECT FROM THE BREEDING LOFT - 2013 tiger grizzle hen bred by Ron Pairan of Ohio. Ron is an "AU Legend of the Sport" and a two-time winner of the Triple Crown Classic. Her sire is an outstanding flyer and breeder, having won several diplomas of his own and having bred several winners and diploma birds as well. Her dam is out of Richard Norris's foundation cock mated to a multiple diploma winner. This is another pigeon I had no intention of selling as of a few months ago, but due to health reasons I find it necessary to downsize my breeding loft. Price: $150
21.

HERE'S ANOTHER - DIRECT FROM THE BREEDING LOFT - BARLESS BLUE HEN She was bred by Willi Thiele of Australia in 2009, but is wearing a band he got from the Philippines. I purchased her as a young bird from Willi via the "World Pigeon Bid" internet auction site. I have bred numerous young from her over the last few years and by now feel I can let her go to someone like myself who is also interested in breeding rare colors that can actually race. She was bred down from a family of successful racers and many of my current flyers and breeders carry some of her genes. You will love her. Price is significantly lower than what I actually paid for her. Price: $150

22.

AND ANOTHER ! - DIRECT FROM THE BREEDING LOFT - 2013 cock carrying reduced.

AU 13 WCOF 3113, black cock carrying reduced. This cock was bred for stock and is unflown; however, he is a brother to a diploma winner. He was used as my primary breeder of reduced birds this past year. I had him mated to a reduced hen and he raised three young reduced, 2 cocks and a hen. If mated to a reduced hen he will throw 50% reduced in both sexes. If mated to a non-reduced hen half of their daughters will be reduced and half of the sons will carry reduced. Mate him to one of your better flying hens to improve the flying ability of your rare colors. Price: $100

23.

AND ANOTHER ! - DIRECT FROM THE BREEDING LOFT - Super HVR cock: IF 09 SLI 559.

You like HVRs? Here is a great one for you. Bred by Gary Bosong of Lighthouse Lofts in New York, this is a sleek, powerful and very impressive pigeon that goes back to the Leon Whitney line of HVR's. He is especially impressive once you get him in your hands. He is among the best handling cocks in my loft. We have sent several of his youngsters out to futurities over the last few years. As is the case with many of these breeders, I list him here with mixed emotions and could easily find myself changing my mind about him. I MUST cut back on my breeders, and that is the sole reason you see him listed here. Price reduced: $100

24.

AND ONE MORE ! - DIRECT FROM THE BREEDING LOFT - 2012 "Cherry" cock no. 2018.

This cock was bred from this past year and produced five youngsters, one of which was banded for the GNEO futurity. One was sent to the MVS auction race, one was given to a new flyer in our club, and the other two were shipped to a new fancier in PA who wanted birds young enough to settle. Although he looks like a silver red bar, 2018 will breed as a blue, since cherry is a recessive gene. If however, he is mated to a recessive opal or a bird carrying recessive opal, he will produce opals and perhaps even another cherry. 2018's sire is a full brother to a 200-mile winner, and he goes back to that family on both sides. He is a blend of several strains, but is primarily HVR and VanHee. Price: $100
